Robert Gillis saves the day again with a few beauties from the Silver Age...
From Jimmy Olsen #59. Okay, so Jimmy was in London and set his watch ahead and that messed with the frequency of the signal watch.
Sooooooo... am I to presume that for six months out of the year when Jimmy adjusts for Daylight Savings Time, he's just out of luck then as well?
That's some pretty lame technology you've got going on there, Supes. This watch will send me a signal whenever you're in trouble, Jimmy... BUT GOD IN HEAVEN ABOVE HELP YOU IF YOU ADJUST THE TIME ON THIS THING!
Here's some more Krypto fun from Superboy #111. Krypto is changing into various animals because... well, I'll let Krypto explain it:
Now I realize that Red Kryptonite has random effects and all that...
.... but seriously? Just being near the animal is what decides it?
So, you'd think that with this newfound knowledge, Krypto would avoid anything that might constitute food to your average meat-eating fella, but apparently he didn't because he later turned into a cow.
And caused the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
Note that Krypto makes no effort to fix his "boo-boo." Krypto is indeed part of the "Superham Family." An estimated 300 people are dying right below him, and all Krypto can do is say "how about that!" and head home.
As an aside, no one actually knows for sure how the fire actually started. Mrs. O'Leary was a great scapegoat because she was an Irish Catholic Immigrant, but the Chicago Republican reporter who reported it (a jackass by the name of Michael Ahem) would admit 20 years later that he made up the whole thing for "colorful copy." Yeah, I'm sure that did Mrs. O'Leary a lot of good. Jerk.
Robert has also started a brand new CMNS meme:
The Random Sucker-Punch!(tm!)
We're not sure from whence this came, but it's awesome.
Thanks again, Robert!
See you tomorrow!
